Are You Remarkable?

Does it even matter whether or not you are remarkable? You better believe it does. If you are not remarkable, you are replaceable.

And I hate to break this to you, but it’s not your personality that makes you remarkable. Everyone has a personality and yours is not really that special. What makes you remarkable is what you can DO to create value for others. That’s good news because you can’t change your personality, but you can decide to become remarkable by doing things uniquely well that are valued in the marketplace.
